I held a flower in my hand,
Its colors were alive and grand.
I decide to crush out its worth,
And give unto it a new birth.
The flower is mangled in death,
It has no beauty and no breath.
     If I could bring back the hour,
     I'd not dishonor the flower.

Well done! Your melancholy is loud and clear.
You do sonnets very well. ~L

It's said that when you like a flower, you just pluck it, but when you love a flower, you water it daily.

Your poetry reminded me of same.
